What can I say about myself? I am an optimist, a vegetarian, a western/southern girl living up north..
To quote one of my favorite movies:
Forrest Gump: My Mama always said you've got to put the past behind you before you can move on.
That's just what I'm gonna do!
I am looking for my Forrest to say: "Me and Jenny goes together like peas and carrots"
I am a spunky, very silly Mormon girl. I have a quirky sense of humor and feel that laughter is the key to solve all of life's problems.
The Lord is my redeemer and my life. I would not be here without his guidance and love. I am very active in the church and hold a temple recommend. I find such peace and solace in the temple. I try to go at least once a month. My temple (DC) is about 3 hours away.
I live in PA, but lived most of my adult life in Las Vegas and Florida. So...I need sun and to be able to smell the rain before it comes!
I love the desert, being outdoors, hanging out with my kids and grand kids. I have one left at home. I just drove my last daughter across the country to start school at BYU. My 6 kids and 10 grand kids live all over the place! So I have been to every state in the contiguous US. I have a son in the foreign service, a son in the army, a son in law in the navy and another one in the army.
We are a very patriotic family. I love this country! I love military history and reading about the strategies of war. I like to read and learn about our great leaders and what motivated them.
I love to travel and love learning about different cultures. I live in the east but can't wait to move back out west in a couple of years. I like camping and hiking and just enjoying nature. Once my son graduates in two years I will be moving back out west, can't wait!!
I try to stay fit. I hurt my knee a few months ago, so no more running for me. So I am training and hoping to walk a marathon. I will start out with a half. But I love to be outside walking!
I am looking for a kind, humorous man that will be a true friend. I'd love to go to the temple with my eternal mate! I am outgoing, adventurous and talkative. I am interested in so many things so there is always something to talk about. A sense of humor is essential, it is a great trait to be able to laugh at yourself and situations that otherwise would make one angry.
Think good thoughts!!
One of my favorite poems:
Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
This quote by Pres Uchtdorf says it all: “What we love determines what we seek. What we seek determines what we think and do. What we think and do determines who we are — and who we will become.”
And..."That's all I have to say about that..."
